ULTRASTRESS PROTECT GAS

HDPE (type PE100-RC) gas pipes with protective layer

ULTRASTRESS PROTECT GAS


ULTRASTRESS PROTECT GAS pressure pipes for gas systems are made from PE100-RC material with polypropylene (PP) protective layer (10% of wall thickness) for additional durability.

PE100-RC material pipes are resistant to long term expansion of cracks, scratching and point type loads. Point type loads are especially common during assembly of the pipelines using trenchless installation methods (for instance, as a result of friction against the stones that are present in the soil). In case of a point type load, tension and plastic deformations are produced in the material, which may cause cracks in the internal surface of the pipe.

PE100-RC pipes with PP coating provide additional durability against scratching in cases of especially complex installation, for
instance, while burst lining.

  • Advantages
    • Environmental stress crack resistance during continuos exploitation
    • Optimized resistance to local deformation
    • Raised resistance to mechanical damages
    • Increased resistance to tension
    • Low resistance to flow
    • Chemical and biological inertness
    • Material neutral to the environment - polyethylene is 100% recyclable and reusable
  • Recommended application
    Conventional (traditional) construction:
    • In open trenches without bedding and filling according to EN 1610, EN 1046, EN 12327, EN 12007-2 (does not apply to soil filled in around the pipe)

    Alternative installation techniques:

    • Laying into the soil with a plough or a milling cuter according to EN 1610, EN 1046, EN 12327, EN 12007-2 (does not apply to soil filled around the pipe)
    • Horizontal directional drilling according to EN 12889, EN 14457

               
    HORIZONTAL DIRECTIONAL DRILLING is used for the construction of new or the reconstruction of old pipelines. The old pipelines can remain fully functional during the reconstruction. Only short term interruptions of work may occur in order to perform new connections. Use of this method is suitable for areas where trench works must be avoided due to, for instance: water bodies, roads and railroads, squares, buildings, etc.

    • Drawing into the old pipe (relining) according to EN 12889, EN 14457

               
    RELINING method is used for reconstruction of old pipelines. An ULTRASTRESS pipe with a slightly smaller diameter is drawn into the old pipe. This method is used in several cases of reconstruction. Only the beginning of the pipeline span that has to be reconstructed and junctions of the pipe are excavated during the works.

    • Burst lining according to EN 12889, EN 14457

               
    BURST LINING is used if the old pipeline is heavily deformed or its diameter does not conform with the new requirements. A hydraulic burst
    head is used as the guide, which builds the way for the new pipe. The specific nature of the method permits the drawing in of a pipe of the same diameter or larger than the existing one. Advantages of the method:

    1. Reconstruction of easily bursting pipes made of materials like ceramic, concrete, cast iron, polymer, steel, etc. is possible.
    2. The flow rate parameters of the new pipe are higher or equal to the throughput capacity of the reconstructed pipe (drawing in of a pipe with larger diameter is possible).
    3. Compact equipment permits operation in restricted conditions

    Pipe welding operations:

    Buttfusion jointing should be carried out according to ISO 12176-1 standard requirements. Electrofusion jointing should be carried out according to ISO 12176-2 standard requirements.
